Accomplished artist


Kevin is 21 years old and lives in Sacramento. At the age of 5 he was diagnosed with autism. He says “I love to paint. I don’t have an academic background – what I do comes from my heart and I developed my own techniques of watercolor with small amounts of water and small brushes.” At age 10 he won first prize in the Crocker Art High School competition. That summer he also had a solo exhibit at the Crocker Art Museum. He has won numerous prizes for his artwork. His art is now displayed in several places including the Rancho Cucamonga Art Museum and Uplands Art Museum. Channel 6, KVIE did a special segment on him. Despite communication challenges, he did a great job speaking about his art. He enjoys donating art to the community to help children with medical needs. He continues to do art despite many medical challenges.
